1. Easy planning!
With planner apps and internet, planning trips as a whole is so easy now - just read reviews online and go through some blogs, images, forecasts.. and you're done!
Who has the time to stand in a queue these days? Go book your tickets on your phone and get status updates instantaneously!
3. Guide yourself
Maps? No, thanks. Gone are the days when you go to a new place, stuck with strangers and trying to figure out maps. Smartphones have it all for you!
4. Bye cameras!
It's time to say goodbye to bulky cameras because hey, when is that 12 megapixel camera with a higher ISO, perfect zoom gonna come into play?
5. Stay in touch
Most importantly, you can share that perfect moment with anyone and everyone. 3G, 4G, LTE and what not! Just click a picture and send over - better yet, just skype or FaceTime!
6. Speak to locals in their language!
Now you can be hassle-free in China while trying to order a plain chicken dish because your smartphone will have a translator and you can communicate with the locals!
7. News on the go
Earlier it used to be a little difficult to keep tab on the news while travelling but hey, now all those apps are going to keep you posted so don't worry!
8. Keep yourself occupied
Travelling isn't boring, no, but those 10 hour car/bus rides can be a bummer. But thanks to your smartphone you can now keep yourself busy reading, playing, chatting or any thing else.. possibly a movie too!
